Yes, I saw it and it was very nice (there was a somewhat heated discussion about it on the Y*h** begonia group). You should go to an ABS convention if you want your socks knocked off if you think the FG issue was beautiful.

Oh... I'm really a novice... and I thought they were really attractive... what was the heated discussion?

RE: Begonias in the latest issue of Fine Gardening

Yes, they are attractive in the magazine article.

The discussion was about growing them in a mixed container with different cultural needs (which I have no problem with since I have several pots with volunteer ferns, some with succulents, and some with more than one type of begonia). The other part of the discussion was that some were not rexes (who really gives a rap if they are or aren't) and that when the rexes went dormant or rotted that many buyers would be turned off begonias forever (so be it).

email me for more details
